Epithelial marker and adhesion molecule expression has been reported in Ewing's sarcoma family of tumors (ESFTs), although the prognostic significance has not been assessed systematically. We performed immunohistochemical analysis of epithelial cell adhesion molecule and epithelial mesenchymal transition markers on 415 genetically confirmed ESFTs. Survival analyses were performed in 217 patients. The atypical histological subtype expressed a high proportion of the epithelial markers compared… CONTINUE READING
